The Importance of Picking the Proper Shampoo for Your Dog
You could be lured to use human-grade shampoo on your dog for the sake of convenience. The challenge is, human-grade shampoo isn't made for use on anything other than your scalp and hair. Dogs have special hair and skin needs that call for shampoos and conditioners with distinct formulations such as dry skin relief, insect-repelling properties, or perhaps dry coat cleaners for the times when you can't give your dog a complete bath.
Think about the reality your dog is highly likely to roll in the garbage, get into a tangle with a skunk, pick up fleas or ticks, get dry, scratchy patches, and it rapidly becomes evident why you need coat products that are designed to deal with these issues. Human-grade shampoo won't consist of the proper components to de-scent, treat dryness, or deal with unwanted hitchhikers. We at City Dogs Grocery sell a full range of dog grooming supplies that satisfy your needs to keep your dog smelling great and looking fantastic.
